EBF bowel movements

Lovely subject alert! LO is ebf, this week her poo has changed from mustard and seedy to very watery, mustard with no seeds. She used to poo after each feed but since the change has only had one big poo a day, today she hasn't pooed at all. She is 11 weeks on Sunday and a poor feeder, she only eats for 5-10 mins each time and weight gain is slow, she has gone down two centiles but won't take a bottle so I can't formula supplement. She does gain weight each time I have her weighed though so I hope she's just hitting the 'right' centile for her. I am petite and DH is average height so not expecting a giant baby! She was 6.6 at birth and just 9 when weighed last week. Anyway i am digressing! My question was whether the change in poo is normal. She is having at least 6 wet nappies a day so I am not concerned about dehydration.

From what I remember being told I think their poo can change but I'm sure someone will be along soon to help.

Yes it is quite normal. If i remember rightly my DS would poo every 3 or 4 days but his bottlefed friends were far more regular! Check with your hv if you are still worried though x

Hi

My LO would go several days without pooing and the mustard seeds do go so it all sounds normal to me. I believe that anything up to two weeks is considered fine for a breast fed baby. Some babies do only feed for a short time too, from what you are saying she sounds perfectly fine to me!

Thanks all. She has Been feeding more the last few days, maybe a growth spurt? Nappies the same though and now just one or two a day. Just had a major scare with her choking on mucous as she has a cold bless her, power of the boob has calmed her down. I think I need a stiff drink to do likewise!

Aw, poor little soul, hope she's better soon. Have you tried Sterimar spray at all? It's only water but it really shoots up the nose and does a very good job of clearing mucus. My oldest daughter was always a really snot bag and this worked wonders for her.

Thanks Gracie. We've used saline drops before to great effect as she was really mucousy as a new born and had a horrible cold at the beginning of April too. I assume the spray is a saline spray as opposed to the drops? Last night came out of nowhere really, she hasn't been that snotty for a few days, it was coming out of her nose and mouth at the same time and she was distraught (as was I!). Thankfully DH was very calm and cleared it for her, she then calmed down, had a 10 minute feed and went back to sleep as if nothing had happened. She's not snotty at all today either!

My first boy was exactly the same, oh the hours I worried about his short feeds, slow weight gain and funny poo. It can all be normal, the things to watch for is that your LO is alert and active, not crying and lethargic (cold aside of course) unfortunately I was badgered constantly by my hv to formula feed but, like your LO, he wouldn't even consider the idea so I went to the GP and he told me to observe him, if he seems well just carry on as you are. From the moment I started weaning my LO rocketed up from the 9th percentile up to the 70th and he's not looked back now he's 3 and a half and exactly right for his weight and height. 2nd boy also only fed 5 or 10 minutes at a time but managed to keep up with the weight charts, didn't take so well to weaning and now is quite lean for his size, go figure!!

Thanks Gracie that's really reassuring. My HV has referred her to a paediatrician just to rule out any issues. I think she's fine myself, she's alert, happy, doesn't cry much, has chubby little cheeks, arms and legs. I'm only 5 ft 3 and size 8 and DH is 5 ft 10 so not a giant so I figure I just have a petite baby. She's tracking second centile perfectly now but only put on 7 oz in two weeks so weight gain us slow I guess. I can't force feed her though so I will just keep going with the BF and if she slips another centile reassess. Glad to hear your LO did so well. Thanks for your words if reassurance, they do help loads xx

No worries, it's good to see a paediatrician as it will set your mind at east (and silence the HVs). They don't take into consideration the size of the baby in these weight charts, friend of mines baby was on the 90th centile and she was constantly badgered for feeding him too much, he's the same age as my eldest (3 and a half) and wears trousers for a 4-5 year olds, they fall down because his tummy doesn't fit them but his leg length does!! As long as she seems well in herself then there can't be too much to worry about, some weeks Jensen only put on 1 or 2 ounces and that was only because I fed him right before the weigh in so his tummy was full. He started life on the 97th percentile (born 5 weeks early and huge) and dropped to less than 20th by the time he was 5 months and I started weaning him (on the advice of my GP).
